PhD /PostDoc in cellbiophysics

22.11.2021, Wissenschaftliches Personal

Living cells rely on the ability of the cytoskeleton to continuously form and destroy diverse structures, which is strongly coupled to the adhesion processes. The group of Prof. Bausch studies the physical basis of the underlying self-organization processes and is looking for a PhD student/PostDoc(f/m)

The Mission:

The design of synthetic cells by a bottom up approach is a promising route to get an understanding of the basic functional principles governing biological functions. Our group focuses thereby on active cytoskeletal systems encapsulated in vesicles. The ultimate goal is to build a minimal migratory system, which mimics cellular migration processes. In the framework of the present project we aim to dissect and rebuild in vitro active turnover of actin filaments inside of vesicles and combining it with reconstituted adhesion complexes. The ultimate goal is to understand the physical principles of the interplay of cytoskeletal reorganization and adhesion site formation. We take an interdisciplinary approach and use high resolution microscopy, in vitro reconstitution, cell biology, and mathematical modelling.

Your Qualification:

  • High motivation, curiosity, and commitment to scientific excellence
  • Master's degree in physics, biochemistry, biophysics or similar fields
  • Practical lab experience
  • Interest in interdisciplinary and quantitative biology
  • Excellent skills in spoken as well as written English

Our offer:

Remuneration and benefits in accordance with the collective agreement for the public service (TV-L13, 75% PhD or 100% PostDoc). The position is (initially) limited to three years.

As a holder of the Total E-Quality Award, we promote equality of opportunity. In order to increase the proportion of women in management positions, we would be pleased to receive corresponding applications. Qualified applicants with physical disabilities will be given preference.

We are looking forward to receiving your comprehensive application preferably per E-mail (
